Missing Topics
Mar 3rd, 2005 at 10:52am
 
Several topics have vanished into thin air. Mostly from The general discussion board and the stripped cogs board. I have no idea where they went nor how so please don't ask me.

I am waiting for some help from the YaBB devs, maybe they can find a way to rescue the lost topics, but I have little hope.

Unfortunately a few member accounts were also corrupted. I managed to save Stan's account with some crafty tweaking. If anyone you know also lost their account please let me know. I will try to save it.

The two boards effected were unfortunately our general discussion boards: LFS General Discussion and Stripped Cogs.

Wow, that suxors!

and just when the GT4 discussion was getting to 10 pages, lol.

I don't know if you mess with the actual DB, but are the actual records of those posts in those topics gone?  Or is it just some misinterpretation of the YaBB software with the DB?  Cause that kinda weird that only 2 topics got enptied, and the rest are fine...

No actual data or files actually lost, but seems like some kind of corruption is happening to some of the variables or settings that causing YaBB suddenly unable to read those data. It happened to IDX before, but that was caused by bandwidth limit, this time, it just happened all of the sudden.

well, as long as the data for all those posts is still intact in the DB, you should be able to eventually save it, with the help of the fine YaBB folks.

When this occurred on IDX a while back we used a mod yo recover the data. But not without incident. We basically came close to losing the whole forum. In the end we were able to save most things but lost the entire LFS section. We made the choice that meant less missing posts. I won't be too worried if we can't retrieve our lost topics this time, it's a pity but not the end of the world. The mod we used on IDX is not currently available for 1.4 anyway.

Yes it was one of the first boards to corrupt. Most of the files that were destroyed were recent ones.
